Much More CTX-D2 discharge tray does the following (among others):

- 5 amp linear charge
- 30 amp pulse discharge
- adjustable cut off voltage (0.8, 0.9, 1.0, etc ...)
- individual cell readings of IR, voltage and runtime

the maintain voltage part though is somthing it cant do.

I just got finished reading through the CTX-D2 thread and while it seems like a really great product - it seems to suffer from quality control and reliability issues. In addition, it seems like a real bitch to send it in for repairs as it has to be shipped to Canada.

Well, this sucks.

Now I just need to find something that isn't going to be DOA or break after a few uses.

BTW ~ Maintaining cell voltage is no longer a requirement.

rmd the Checkpoint looks to be the best value charger available.
Ive ordere 2 from Tower.
Ive currently got a Ice I bought recently and love it.
Also have a Tekin BC112 but thats going in to Tekin for repairs.

For discharger i am using the Teamwave and am very happy with it.

Well, this sucks.

Well It could be worse, if you had to ship to somewhere in the US.

Just giving ya a hard time. as I live in canada.

And getting anything from the us through Ups is the sh#t's. I would rather buy from Asian than buy from a US merchant. faster and cheaper.

Hey My 0.02

The Checkpoint charger is very nice. I have a SuperBrain 977 and the max charge rate on it is only 5A, 4A discharge. Good enough for nitro - not good enough for electric.

Glad to hear that the Team Wave is working out well for you.
